Encoders Explained: Types and Applications
If you Google the word “encoder,” you’re likely to receive a somewhat confusing array of search results. Made plain and simple, an encoder is used to determine the position, velocity, and direction of something in motion. And in terms of industrial machinery, encoders are used for motion feedback and motion control. They are able to accomplish this through the use of special sensors which capture position information and then relay that information to other connected devices. Linear encoders measure motion along a straight path, while rotary encoders are able to capture measurements related to rotational motion. There are several varieties of sensing technology utilized in industrial encoders, including optical, magnetic, and capacitive. Encoders are also typically rated as either light-duty, medium-duty, or heavy-duty, depending upon the measurements of the target loads involved. Industrial encoders provide vital information needed for precise motion control in many applications, including servo motors, assembly lines, packaging systems, rotary tables, robotic machinery, etc.

The AES Encoder Repair Process
A damaged or malfunctioning encoder requires prompt repairs or service in order to prevent any unnecessary equipment damage. Choosing to be proactive about taking care of your equipment will help you to maintain the level of productivity you’ve come to expect from your equipment, and can end up saving you money in the long run, too. When you send your encoder to AES for diagnosis and repair, here’s the proven process we follow to address your needs:
Receipt of Equipment & Initial Analysis
Once we receive your encoder, we’ll assign it a unique service number for easy ID and tracking. After proper check-in, we then move right to our evaluation and assessment phase. We’ll work to diagnose any issues with your encoder, and will flag any repairs or other services needed to restore your equipment. We endeavor to share our repair quote with you within 48 hours of item receipt.
Once You Approve the Order, We’ll Get to Work!
After reviewing the repair quote, once you officially approve the order, we’ll immediately place it on our repair schedule. And then it’s go time! Our team will complete your encoder repairs and service with care and precision. At AES, we work hard to do the job right the first time, and every time!
Testing & Retesting
Once the repair service is completed, we know that our job isn’t done yet. The only way we can ensure that your encoder is truly working properly is to conduct a series of tests under full-load conditions. Because we believe in taking care of you the right way, we make a point to test and retesting every piece of equipment we repair. We share the same goal that you do – that your equipment will perform exactly as expected once it’s returned to your facility!
Final Equipment Cleaning & Quality Assurance Steps
Once we’ve confirmed that your encoder is functioning at optimal levels, we’ll go ahead and clean all the contacts and other surfaces with electronics-appropriate cleaning tools & agents. We’ll finish by going through some final quality assurance measures to make sure your equipment is ready-to-go once you receive it.
Prompt Return of Repaired Equipment
Our final step is to properly package your equipment for return, and then we’ll have it shipped back to you. Alternatively, some of our local clients prefer to drop off their equipment to be repaired in person. In this case, we’ll simply notify you that your equipment is now ready to go, and available for pickup.
